How do I install a head restraint?

The front head restraints, and the rear center head restraint can be removed. After being removed, these head restraints will need to be reinstalled. Installing one of the head restraints takes only a few seconds: 1. Insert the head restraint legs into the locks. 2. Press and hold the release button, which is located at the base of the head restraint’s legs. 3. Push the head restraint down to the desired height, then let go of the release button. 4. Try and move the head restraint to make sure that it is securely locked into place.
